The Posing Public

By JohnHawthorne  
Yesterday you remember that I was caught trying to snap a long distance candid by this girl Hadas. Well after that I decided to get closer and only having a fixed focal length 50mm lens on I had to zoom with my feet. Hadas was very friendly as you as see and she runs a small shop selling cosmetics, so all of a sudden I found myself sitting down with Hadas applying some strange cosmetic cream to my face that she brought from abroad! I've no idea how I agreed to sit down in the middle of a shopping centre and let someone apply cosmetic cream to my face! Maybe the friendly, pretty Hadas had something to do with it, but that makes it even more embarrassing and incriminating. The shopping centre was virtually empty but I'm thinking to myself "what if one of my friends sees me? I'll never live this down". Anyway, as good as the cream was I politely declined the kind offer of £200 to buy a tub of it and went on my way, still looking around to see if anyone knew me.

Before I made my retreat we exchanged business cards (I carry photography business cards when out shooting) and also took a few more shots for good measure (more of Hadas tomorrow). Later I emailed a few images to Hadas as a thank you.

Good shot John, what if an Ephotoziner had captured you getting the cream on ?? That would be the shot . Look forward to the next uploads.
